Meerlust Rubicon 2018
Stellenbosch, South Africa, 75cl
Meerlust Rubicon is a classic Cape blend of 49% Cabernet Sauvignon, 28% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Franc and 3% Petit Verdot. Showing a deep, purple in hue, the nose reveals wild violets, ripe plum, cedar wood, fennel, and an intense spiciness, with typical graphite and liquorice. The palate is rich with rounded tannins and a bright acidity. Packed full of fresh dark fruits, toasted oak, and vanilla on the finish. This is a standout South African red playing homage to the classic Bordeaux blends. Still young, Meerlust Rubicon will age gracefully for many years to come!
"...dazzles with gentle waves of blackberry crumble, crème de cassis, macerated black cherries, freshly tilled earth, unsmoked cigars and a finely textured, powdery tannin frame that dries the palate on the finish and reminds the drinker that this wine, however enjoyable in its youth, is also built for extended ageing. This really is another exquisite vintage with charm and poise, Grand Vin potency and an overt, unbridled determination to deliver long-term drinking pleasure..." - 96 Pts, Greg Sherwood MW
